It’s that time of year again: March Madness. The time where TV sets are usurped by the basketball lovers in the household and sports bars are filled with fans who were beaten to the remote.
In honor of March Madness, choose one of the writing challenges below:
- Write a short story about an adult who is trying to watch his/her team play, but is continually being thwarted. This could be a comedic or tragic story depending on how you present it.
- Choose an age group and create some basketball themed brainteasers (logic problems, riddles, etc.) for that age group.
- Write an article about the history of March Madness or explaining what March Madness is and how brackets work. Choose a sports magazine and try to write your article within the parameters of that magazine (word count, style, etc.).
Happy writing “and may the odds be ever in [your team’s] favor” (Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games)!
